Reports have Landon Collins both staying with and leaving the Giants

Well, the National Football League offseason certainly hasn't lacked drama thus far. Right now there have reportedly been no negotiations on a long-term deal.

However, those waters were disputed on Wednesday when a ripple interrupted the calm as ESPN's Josina Anderson, citing sources, reported that Collins had cleaned out his locker in East Rutherford and shared his goodbye with teammates and coaches.

There's still almost two weeks left in the window to use the tag, but if the Giants don't choose to, Collins would enter a market that hasn't been kind to safeties in recent years, and includes some other top names including Earl Thomas and Tyrann Mathieu.

However, the New York Post later refuted the report, which prompted a tweet from Collins himself for clarification. Repeat: Landon Collins HAS NOT cleaned out his locker at the team facility.

"The stuff in that locker that I have left I do not need", he wrote on Twitter. "Go about your business and have a nice day".

China Mobile wants to start with 5G Stand Alone, which sounds like an expensive move that will enable many advantages of the 5G. That's a bit of a bummer for all these first-gen 5G phones, which will suffer from numerous disadvantages at launch.

The Daily News also reported Collins' locker remained full Wednesday and that he had not said his farewells. That question is certainly up for debate, but the overriding belief is that the team will designate Collins their franchise player before the deadline ultimately arrives.

On #Giants S Landon Collins and @JosinaAnderson's report, I gather he took personal items from his locker.

With an abundance of salary cap space, the Colts could give Collins the contract he's looking for while the 25-year-old provides production and stability to a thin safety room.

There are two types of franchise tags: exclusive and nonexclusive.
